1 UP Yours enjoyed almost instantaneous success from the outset. With a mixture 
of humor and serious discussion about video gaming news and new releases, 1 UP's 
flagship podcast cemented its position in podcast history with its superb debut 
year. 1 UP and Ziff Davis staff John Davison, Luke Smith, Shane Bettenhausen, and 
Mark MacDonald joined host Garnett Lee weekly to provide a level of 
entertainment only paralleled by GameSpot's The HotSpot. 

Garnett Lee opens the show with Whatcha Been Playin'? and makes a controversial 
statement. Luke and Shane butt heads over the next generation of consoles, as 
Shane looks to defend Sony and Luke looks to attack everybody. The group talks 
about the future of gaming, and issues of maturity in the industry, and everybody 
basks in Garnett's many foibles.

Garnett Lee 

Garnett Lee joined 1 UP as a PC editor in 2002 after working for a time in video 
game retail. The flagship 1 UP podcast became 1 UP Yours in 2006 after it launched 
as a non-descript news show in late 2005. Lee quickly became both a capable host, 
as well as the butt of many jokes for his peers as they mused over his age and his 
radical opinions about video games. Lee left lUPin 2009 and joined Shacknews 
where he started a podcast similar to 1 UP Yours called Weekend Confirmed. 

John Davison 

After an already storied career in video game journalism, John Davison joined Ziff 
Davis in the late 90s. His tenure there saw him switching frequently between 
magazines, where he served as editor for Electronic Gaming Monthly and the 
Official PlayStation Magazine. He then took charge of Ziff Davis' 1 He was

Luke Smith 

Luke Smith began his video game career as a writer for news blog Kotaku. He 
moved on to 1 UP in 2006. He appeared on 1 UP Yours immediately and was put in 
charge of news. Smith's razor-like sense of humor and his aggressive and 
passionate tone gave him instant appeal among listeners. He led the podcast's 
willingness to openly criticize developers and the industry in a manner not seen 
before in professional gaming podcasts. He left lUPin 2007 to join game 
developer Bungie. 

Shane Bettenhausen 

After writing for various gaming outlets, Shane Bettenhausen began his long term 
as an editor for Electronic Gaming Monthly. His encyclopedic knowledge of video 
games and his apparent intense determination to defend Sony Computer 
Entertainment made him a fan favorite. Fans adored his frankness, and his 
continued denial of his Sony bias. He left 1 UP in 2008, and after several years with 
Ignition Entertainment, joined Sony Computer Entertainment.

Thanks a TON for the memories. You, sir, did a great job. 

If you get a Retronauts best of as well, that'd be awesome as well :)

Damn. Luke, Shane, Garnett, John and Mark; the best line up in podcast 


Anonymous February 24, 201 1 at 12:09 AM 
Awesome, keeps these coming, Retronauts, GFW, etc 

Scott Myles February 26, 201 1 at 3:1 2 PM 
Thank you so much for doing this. 

I used to edit out clips from the show, and I still have a huge library of 
them sitting around. I would always tell myself that I would eventually go 
back and edit them all together into something coherent, but 
procrastination always got the better of me. 

You actually followed through, and now we all have an easily accessible, 
sharable example of what made 1UP Yours such an extraordinary podcast. 

The community owes you a debt of gratitude :).
